^Bare shelves are certainly an issue that make it hard to shop there. I'm sure all the uncertainty about Neechi's future have hurt sales and made it difficult to keep the store stocked up. But really, you can't fault Neechi for not competing with Superstore on prices. There has to be a markup to keep it viable - just like any small independent neighbourhood grocer. For folks in the area who don't have a car, it's not an option to shop at Superstore anyway. I agree that the older store on Dufferin was a good thing. Unfortunately, they were far too ambitious with their expansion.

Anyone lose any money in any of these schemes?

As I gather, he appealed and got a stiffer sentence! That sucks lol

http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/manito...dyck-1.4626794

Quote:
A Winnipeg businessman convicted of fraud and tax evasion had his fine more than doubled from just over $1 million to more than $2 million earlier this month, after he appealed, seeking a lower sentence.

Jeff Dyck was sentenced to three years in prison in January 2017, after he and partner Neil Friesen pleaded guilty to two counts of tax evasion for their involvement in a company called One World United Inc.

Dyck had served as the president and sole shareholder of the company, which had participants contribute an amount in cash and, in return, provided false invoices for business losses in amounts greater than the cash contribution.

It was multiple scams with this guy too. He just moved from one to another. But hey, lots of big name wrestlers came to Winnipeg with investors money!

^^^ I thought I heard there will be no job losses. It was something like 12 or 14 people and they could all be re-assigned to different positions.

Quote from the article: It says two of its 14 local staff will continue to work in Winnipeg to maintain ties with grain companies based there.

Overall a small amount of jobs. However, it's an end of an era...

^ The job losses have basically all happened already. The ICE Futures desk in Winnipeg moved to a small office on Pembina years ago.
